BENEFITING: NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2016
The CNY 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is not a race, but rather a tribute honoring the sacrifices of fallen heroes - both near and far.
Fulfilling a promise to "NEVER FORGET" their brothers and sisters who have died in the line of duty, 343 firefighters, 60 law enforcement officers and 8 EMTs (the number of firefighters/law enforcement/EMTs that perished at Ground Zero with the collapse of the Twin Towers) climb 110 floors (the height of the former World Trade Center Twin Towers).
Most climbers wear their personal protective equipment.
ALL climbers wear the name and picture of a hero they are climbing in the memory of.
